Price Paid: $60 on sale


Lightweight and comfortable, these fit great right out of the box.
Stylish and suitable for city walks as well as light hiking.


  • Merrell's footbed and cushioning technology ensure comfort.


  • Recycled mesh is only water resistant, and will wear out before the rest of the upper does.

I own several other pairs of Merrells. Their shoes fit me well and I find them very comfortable as well as durable.

My wide feet fit the size 7 well, the laces easily adjusted the shoe to my foot.

Super comfortable without any breaking in needed, wore them 5 hours walking on the first day.

Light weight and plenty of bounce keep your tiredness at bay.

No experience in the rain or on wet surfaces yet. Grippy sole made from durable Sticky Rubber, with some recycled content.

Well ventilated shoe.

Mesh is made from recycled components, making this a green shoe whatever the color!

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Merging its lightweight hiking heritage with modern performance comfort, the Solo Origins from Merrell keeps pace over any terrain.

- EMS refers to the men's version

With a tried and true, ultra-stable design, the Merrell Men's Solo Origins Hiking Shoe brings supreme comfort and support to the light hiker category. Tough pig suede protects your feet from trail hazards while grippy lugs provide traction underfoot, and air cushioning smooths out the ground under your heel. Merell added an anti-odor lining so you can go the distance without your shoes smelling like you just waded through a swamp on your way to the summit (unless you actually wade through a swamp, in which case, please disregard the previous claim).

- refers to the men's version

Take to the hills and hike through any conditions in comfort when you're wearing the Merrell Men's Solo Origins Hiking Shoes. A supple pig leather and mesh upper offers breathable resistance to water, mud, sand and other debris while letting foot moisture escape. The lining is treated with an Aegis antimicrobial solution to keep your feet odor-free while the EVA insole gives you luxurious cushioning. These low height hiking boots have an EVA dual density footbed to absorb shock and support your foot when your pack is on the heavy side. Merrell Air Cushion in the heel helps take the impact off your joints on steep descents. Trail conditions rough? The sticky rubber sole will give you the traction you need. From Switzerland to the Sierras, the Merrell Solo Origins Hiking Shoes for men will help you get to the summit for that sought-after view.

- Altrec Outdoors refers to the men's version

Once a trendsetter, always a trendsetter. Our anniversary-edition Solo hiking shoe keeps its classic slim figure from its lightweight suede and mesh upper, while supporting you with modern cushioning and stability in its sole, thanks to an air cushion in the heel. And with recycled materials throughout, you're being kind to your Mother.
